That was Kentucky’s best defensive performance since 2007

It was a great night for Kentucky defensively, especially after comparing it to recent history.  According to the game notes from UK, Eastern Michigan’s 38 points is the lowest point total by a Kentucky opponent since those pesky Tigers of Texas Southern lost 83-35 in November of 2007.  The Wildcats are now 28-0 under John Calipari when holding opponents to 55 or fewer points.

It doesn’t stop there.  Eastern Michigan’s 24.8% shooting performance is the worst by a visiting team since Central Arkansas shot 20% from the field in a 67-40 loss in Rupp Arena, which also occurred in November of 2007.

It was that kind of game.

    @1 but you’ve got to consider, UK teams of the past 6 years have surely played opponents at least as bad as Eastern Michigan

    Cal’s thing he is releasing tomorrow will be about making players wear heart monitors to keep their heart rate up during practice. If the players dropped below a certain rate they had to run. Heard it here first.

    Don’t try to reason with me #3. I am here only to read my own posts and to bask in their vapidity.

    That 2007-08 team must’ve been really good, what with MKGillespie at the helm.

    To be fair, Gillispie won that game in 2007 with Tubby’s players
